Servings 8


Tart Base:

  • 150 gm digestive biscuits
  • 100 gm butter
  • 20 gm unsweetened cocoa powder
  • pinch of salt

Nutella Filling:

  • 200 gm Nutella
  • 200 gm heavy cream
  • 250 gm dark chocolate
  • toasted hazelnuts (Optional: For garnish)
  • gold leaf (Optional: For garnish)


To make the tart crust

  • Blitz the biscuits in a food processor till crumbed. Melt the butter, and stir in the cocoa powder and salt.
  • Once the mixture is slightly cooled, add in the crumbed biscuits and mix well. The consistency should resemble wet sand.
  • Use your fingers to press the mixture into a 7-inch tart pan. Use the bottom of a glass or a spatula, to press and secure the mix in an even layer, if needed.
  • Once done, place in the fridge to set for three hours.

For the Nutella filling

  • Place the dark chocolate, Nutella and heavy cream in a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds at a time until melted. Use a spatula to mix well till you achieve a smooth, lump-free and glossy filling. (You can also add chopped toasted hazelnuts to the filling for a special crunch).
  • Pour the filling into the chilled tart pan and place it back into the fridge to set for at least four to five hours.
  • Once the tart has set, garnish with hazelnuts or gold leaf if desired, and serve immediately.
